here's a site that has a nifty calculator for what you are seeking
http://stellafane.org/misc/equinox.html

you can cross reference them by a series of searches from this site
http://www.setlists.net/

as you know, equinox and solstice dates vary by a day or 2 each year and the date is split between one day and the next somewhere in the world for any given event

the UTC time can be selected to calculate any time zone if you know the difference in hours between the time in England and the zone you are trying to calculate (adjust for any daylight savings factor)

the day to day changes between the amounts of light and darkness are more rapid around an equinox and far less around a solstice, further compounding the extremes experienced those of us sitting on top of the world (or underneath)

if you do take the time to research this, i (we) would be grateful should you post the results

the never ending efforts of people to freely share their knowledge is truly amazing

and it covers 2,000 years, that should be enough to include most GD shows

Bouddha once said: if thousands of people have the same opinion it doesn't prouve it s the truth, and if only one had an opinion it never proves it could't be true !

Buddha also said opinions were like toothbrushes, damned if s/he used someone else's and damned to let anyone else use hers/his

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Autumnal Equinox show

With midnight suns' help I was able to accumulate the info I needed to find a true autumnal equinox show .
The results suprised me because I thought I'd have a ton of material to search through , but once the times calculated at EDT stared coming in w/ the dates I realizes that only a handful of these days will have a true equinox time that will correspond to times that the Dead could be playing . Can you dig it so far ? So my first possible hit I had was

68-22-09 Del Mar Ca. eq time: 19:36 EDT
Now I'm not sure but the Dead probaly are not playin at 15:30 Pacific time? It is at a campground though so I guess its feasible. No set list was mentioned

The next one pretty close time and a termendous show

My search took me all the way to 93 where I think I hit paydirt

93-22-09 Madison Square Garden eq time 20:22 EDT

setlist; Help> Slip> Franklin's, Minglewood, Ramble On Rose, Masterpeice,Birdsong

second set : No Easy Anwsers,Looks Like Rain,Estimated. Dark Star> Drums. Space> Wharf Rat> Throwin> Lovelight E: I Fought The Law
w/ Dave Murry- sax and James Cotten- Harmonica

So, I can't say for certian but I found a GRATE show looking.
